Wags N' Whiskers Challenge #9

Well.... can you imagine I am back again today!! It was a really busy blogging week for me, more posts than normal but lots of lets continue all that fun with the Wags N' Whiskers Challenge. Wags N' Whiskers fabulous artist Crissy Armstrong is hosting today's challenge and she has chosen..... "Be Inspired". Crissy would like you to use someone else's creation to inspire you! Give them credit for the inspiration and link us back to their project.

It didn't take me long to think of who I wanted to use for my inspiration. My card is cased from Michelle Petermann and I have adored her card from the minute I laid eyes on it. This is Michelle's card here.

The beautiful image I am using for my card today is "Angel Whispers".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I painted her wings with a thick coat of frosted lace stickles. I cut out another pair of butterflies and layered them. I embossed the whole card with a CB folder and added 2 panels embossed with the same CB folder. The frame is cut with my nesties circles and fluer de lis pendant. I used my fler de lis border punch from EK Success for the bottom edge of the card. I added some mulberry paper roses and some flat backed pearls.
I hope you like it......

There are some amazing creations made by the Diva's this week so be sure to pop on over to the Wags N Whiskers Blog and see who inspired each one of them!!

I hope you will have time to play along with us this week and don't forget if you want to be eligble for a chance to win this weeks fabulous prize you must use a WnW image on your card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
